This top FTSE 100 income stock is down 11%. Is now the time to buy?

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address FTSE 100 firm AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) is currently down 11% from its 2020 high of 7,878p. The biopharmaceutical firm now hovers around 6,887p.In my view, this company is a great buying opportunity right now. And the market appears to think so too. AstraZeneca is already up 9% from its coronavirus-related drop in March. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…A wide economic moatSome analysts say AstraZeneca has a wide economic moat. In plain English, this phrase refers to the firm’s large competitive advantage when compared with its peers.The company is a major presence in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. AstraZeneca is a highly regarded FTSE 100 household name. It is globally renowned for its patent-protected drugs. Its innovative developing pipeline deserves a mention too.The firm’s new drug, Farxiga, performed better than expected in its drug trial. And the oncology drugs, Calquence and Enhertu, are expecting regulatory approvals this year. With Lynparza now approved in China, AstraZeneca’s fastest-growing region, the future for the firm’s medicines looks good. In fact, the provision of new drugs is offsetting the patent losses experienced with the drugs Crestor and Nexium. These losses held down AstraZeneca’s potential growth. Offsetting them with successes will enable the company to move forward.The FTSE pharma stalwart was expecting a large impact on business due to its high exposure to China. However, according to CEO Pascal Soriot the effect has so far been limited.Pharma companies often do well in an economic downturn because the demand for medicines continues. In the same way, through a pandemic, the demand for pharmaceutical goods and services may even increase. Consequently, AstraZeneca is helping the UK government with the new coronavirus testing facility at Cambridge University.But the biotech firm is focusing on more than the pandemic. It is working hard to reduce any impact of Brexit at the end of the year. The supply chain is already adjusted in preparation for the change. And it has diversified its customer base by expanding into emerging markets (EM). In 2019, revenues from EM investments increased by a whopping 84%. Sales in China alone jumped 35% to $4.9bn.A top FTSE 100 dividend payerThe reliable AstraZeneca dividend currently sits above 3%. The defensive qualities of the FTSE 100 company are being noticed by the market. The shares reached record highs earlier this year and have been climbing steadily since the early 1990s. But, unusually in the current climate, the dividend appears to be relatively safe. I think this makes the stock extremely attractive.The recent climb in the share price is in spite of 2019’s lower reported profits. It’s likely investors were taking into consideration the higher expenses related to drug launches and the Chinese expansion. These expenses pushed operating profit down 16% to $2.9bn.   AstraZeneca is certainly investing in its future. In 2019 alone, it spent $6.1bn on R&D. It has nine blockbuster drugs on the market and a very promising pipeline of label extensions and new therapies.The firm is managing the coronavirus pandemic well. It is positioning for future growth and planning for any hurdles. I think AstraZeneca is a good buy.

Foto de Andrew Burton/REUTERS.[Episcopal News Service] Un obispo jubilado y un sacerdote de la diócesis episcopal de Nueva York se encuentran entre las siete personas declarados culpables el 18 de junio de allanar un terreno propiedad de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad en Wall Street, durante una manifestación del movimiento Ocupar Wall Street, y sentenciados a cuatro días de trabajo comunitario.George Packard, Obispo episcopal jubilado y ex obispo sufragáneo para las institutos armados y ministerios federales, y Earl Kooperkamp, rector de la iglesia episcopal de Santa María [St. Mary’s] en Harlem, enfrentaban hasta 90 días de prisión por el más grave de los cargos, le había dicho antes a ENS Gideon Oliver, abogado de Packard.Mark Adams, un octavo acusado, fue declarado culpable de allanamiento y de cargos adicionales de un delito contra la propiedad y de posesión de instrumentos para el robo, por intentar supuestamente usar alicates para cortar la cerca que bordea la propiedad. Lo sentenciaron a 45 días de prisión en Rikers Island y se lo llevaron esposado del tribunal, dijo Oliver en una entrevista telefónica luego del juicio.“Estamos considerando si apelamos o no”, agregó. “Tenemos 30 días para tomar esa decisión. Creo que, por el momento todos nos concentramos en apoyar a Mark”.En una declaración publicada en la página web de la Trinidad, el rector, Rdo. James Cooper, dijo que la iglesia apoyaba muchos de los principios inherentes al movimiento de Ocupar Wall Street y seguiría acogiendo a los que protestaban en sus instalaciones de la vecindad de Wall Street, pero agregó que “no apoya la ocupación de propiedad privada”.En el juicio, celebrado el 18 de junio, el testimonio de Cooper “se concentró fundamentalmente en la postura de [la iglesia de] La Trinidad de no apoyar un abierto acampamento en la Plaza Duarte ni en dar permiso para ello”, dijo Linda Hanick, encargada de comunicaciones y vicepresidente de comunicaciones y mercadeo de la iglesia.Packard y Kooperkamp se encontraban entre 65 personas que fueron arrestadas el 17 de diciembre -entre ellas los sacerdotes de Long Island, Rdos. John Merz y Michael Sniffen- luego de penetrar en la propiedad de la Plaza Duarte en el Bajo Manhattan como parte de una actividad de Ocupar Wall Street con la que querían conmemorar el tercer mes de que se iniciara el movimiento.Un vídeo del 17 de diciembre mostraba a Packard subiendo por una escalera que los manifestantes habían recostado a la cerca y descendiendo al terreno dentro de la propiedad, la primera persona en entrar al lugar.OWS había estado cabildeando con la iglesia de La Trinidad para usar el espacio como un campamento de invierno, luego del desalojo de que había sido objeto el 15 de noviembre en el parque Zuccotti, cerca de la iglesia. La Trinidad rehusó, citando la falta de instalaciones sanitarias en el lugar y un contrato de arrendamiento con el Consejo Cultural del Bajo Manhattan que usa el terreno para periódicas instalaciones de arte. Packard había estado tratando de obtener un acuerdo entre los miembros de OWS y La Trinidad.El 18 de junio, dijo Oliver, “el obispo Packard testificó acerca de sus experiencias con el rector Cooper y con La Trinidad sobre su intento de actuar como un mediador entre Ocupar Wall Street y la iglesia”.“Él testificó que tenía la creencia de que el rector Cooper y la Trinidad se mostrarían indulgentes, y argüimos que desde el punto de vista legal eso se traducía en una creencia sincera y de buena fe de que tenía licencia o autoridad para entrar en el terreno”, dijo Oliver. “El juez rechazó ese argumento legal”.Oliver dijo estar “desencantado más que sorprendido” de que el juez Matthew Sciarrino declarara culpables a los ocho acusados en un proceso sin jurado. “El sistema legal está concebido para defender la propiedad privada”.“De algún modo, las condenas fortalecieron aún más los argumentos morales”, agregó.Packard dijo estar sorprendido y entristecido por el resultado del juicio. Habló con ENS desde un teléfono móvil mientras asistía, luego del juicio, a una conferencia en apoyo de Adams, quién él dijo que se había “convertido en el chivo expiatorio” por los hechos del 17 de diciembre. El fiscal recomendó una sentencia de 30 días, pero a Adams le impusieron 45 días.“Nosotros ocho [los acusados] nos sentimos como vinculados en una hermandad”, afirmó. “Nos sentimos como si nos hubieran arrebatado a un miembro de la familia de entre nosotros”.La Trinidad no tenía que mantener los cargos, pero optó por “proteger intereses fiduciarios”, dijo Packard a ENS. “Es muy triste. Significa, que a esto es a lo que ha llegado nuestra Iglesia. No tenemos suficientes promesas para sostener muchos lugares. Por tanto dependemos de los fondos de la inversión corporativa. Es una caricatura de lo que es el evangelio”.Otra decisión judicialMerz, sacerdote a cargo de la iglesia episcopal de la Ascensión [Ascension], en Greenpoint, Brooklyn, y Sniffen, sacerdote encargado de la iglesia episcopal de San Lucas y San Mateo [St. Luke and St. Matthew] también en Brooklyn, aceptaron una suspensión con vistas a una absolución (ACD, por su sigla en inglés) el 28 de febrero, lo cual significa que los cargos contra ellos serían desestimados y no tendrían ningún antecedente delictivo si no volvían a ser arrestados en los próximos seis meses, según dijo un funcionario del tribunal.Packard le dijo a ENS en marzo que él había decidido no aceptar una oferta de ACD porque quería tener la oportunidad de responder a los cargos en el tribunal.“Probablemente también me volverán a arrestar”, dijo Packard, que ha seguido participando en el movimiento Ocupar Wall Street y compartiendo sus experiencias en su blog. “No estoy buscando que me arresten, pero hay muchísimas posibilidades”.Lo volvieron a arrestar junto con otros veteranos de las Fuerzas Armadas durante una manifestación en la Plaza en Memoria de los Veteranos de Vietnam, en Nueva York. Hasta el 12 de junio, según le dijo Oliver a ENS, no lo habían instruido de cargos en ese caso.El proceso por allanamiento se aplazó el 14 de junio luego de que Jack Boyle, uno de los acusados, que había estado en huelga de hambre y había dejado de tomar sus medicamentos para el VIH por cuenta de los cargos, fuera arrestado la noche antes y no hubiera sido procesado aún. Cuando el juicio se reanudó esa tarde, unas 40 personas -entre ellas Merz y Sniffen y una monja católica romana- asistieron como observadores.En una entrevista telefónica en junio, Packard había expresado sorpresa por los cargos de allanamiento y la manera de su arresto.Cuando entré en la propiedad el 17 de diciembre, dijo, “sentí que estaba entrando en un área protegida y que estaba cerrada por la temporada. Yo había visitado a los que habían estado en huelga de hambre en el perímetro de ese espacio… tres o cuatro veces. He visitado ese lugar junto con Jim Cooper”.“Allanar no es una palabra que estoy acostumbrado a oír relacionada con una propiedad de la Iglesia”, añadió Packard. “Oigo expresiones como ‘refugio’ y ‘santuario’ e incluso… en el boletín de La Trinidad ellos hablan de ‘hospitalidad radical’”.“Es desconcertante para mí que La Trinidad llevara adelante el proceso de estos arrestos. Yo estaba completamente seguro de que retirarían los cargos”, dijo Packard. “Por alguna razón, yo no pongo ‘allanar’ y ‘propiedad de la Iglesia’ en la misma oración. Tal vez es que sencillamente soy ingenuo. Comparto una larga historia con la iglesia de La Trinidad”.Como obispo sufragáneo para el ministerio de los institutos armados, él pasó tiempo con el clero de la Trinidad cerca de la Zona Cero luego de los ataques terroristas del 11 de septiembre de 2001 a las torres del Centro Mundial del Comercio en la vecindad de la capilla de San Pablo, que pertenece a [la parroquia de] La Trinidad. “Esos fueron días horribles y espantosos, y La Trinidad se mostró al mundo lo gentil y estupenda institución que era. Ellos ofrecieron refrigerio y descanso [a los rescatistas]”.El 17 de diciembre “ni siquiera nos advirtieron de que nos iban a arrestar”, dijo.En otras protestas que él había presenciado como capellán, agregó, “siempre había ese pomposo anuncio por un magnavoz”, advirtiéndole a la gente que se exponían a un arresto.“Allí no hubo nada de eso” subrayó Packard.En su declaración del 18 de junio, Cooper dijo que La Trinidad tenía “un largo y activo historial en abordar las inequidades sociales y económicas.“Si bien simpatizamos con muchos de los objetivos expuestos por los manifestantes de OWS, no apoyamos la toma de una propiedad privada”, dice el comunicado. “La Trinidad instó a la oficina del Fiscal del Distrito a ofrecer arreglos no penales antes del juicio y a no solicitar sentencias de prisión para los acusados que hubieran optado por comparecer ante el tribunal. A todos los manifestantes les impusieron sanciones de cuatro días de servicio comunitario, excepto a uno de ellos que fue declarado culpable de otros delitos ocasionales y quien tenía varios casos abiertos sin relación alguna con la Plaza Duarte. Seguimos apoyando los principios básicos inherentes al movimiento Ocupar y seguiremos acogiendo a los manifestantes, como hemos acogido a todos los demás en nuestra comunidad, en nuestras instalaciones en la vecindad de Wall Street”.Según el proceso continuaba, así también las protestas y las “acciones” en Nueva York y otros lugares como parte del movimiento Ocupar [Wall Street] que ya tiene nueve meses. Inspirado en la Primavera Árabe, el movimiento Ocupar Wall Street, que intentaba protestar contra lo que los participantes veían como codicia y desigualdad galopantes en el mundo financiero, se inició el pasado 17 de septiembre. Los manifestantes acamparon en el parque Zuccotti (antes llamado Liberty Plaza Park) y crearon una comunidad con todos los elementos, desde una biblioteca circulante a grupos de trabajo que planificaban acciones y declaraciones sobre varias inquietudes sociales y económicas. Los participantes se organizaron valiéndose de un liderazgo “horizontal”, en lugar de jerárquico, y tomaban decisiones en “asambleas generales” democráticas.Surgieron otros acampamentos en ciudades y pueblos de todo el país y alrededor del mundo, incluido uno frente a la catedral de San Pablo en Londres. Al cabo de unos meses, las autoridades desbarataron la mayoría de los acampamentos.Algunos episcopales y otras personas de fe han apoyado el movimiento desde el principio. Marisa Egerston, candidata a doctora de la universidad de Harvard, organizó un grupo llamado Capellanes de la Protesta [Protest Chaplains] que participó en la iniciativa del parque Zuccotti y que ha apoyado al movimiento Ocupar Boston. En Nueva York, algunos clérigos episcopales, entre ellos el obispo diocesano de Long Island, Lawrence Provenzano, y los arrestados el 17 de diciembre, pasaron algún tiempo con los ocupantes del parque Zuccotti y han sido activos con el movimiento Occupy Faith NYC.El abogado de Packard es presidente del capítulo de la ciudad de Nueva York del Colegio Nacional de Abogados, que ha ofrecido una representación legal gratuita a los arrestados en relación con las protestas de OWS, dijo Oliver. “Yo me he ocupado de unos cuantos cientos de casos por mí mismo”.Oliver — que se define como un agnóstico criado como “judío liberal” — dijo en una entrevista el 12 de junio que se había sentido inspirado por Packard y agrupaciones religiosas afines a OWS como Occupy Faith. “Siento una afinidad política y una inspiración a partir de lo que ellos están haciendo… en el contexto de sus propias comunidades de fe. De cierto modo encarna realmente el concepto de ‘Ocupar todo’ que luego del desalojo de la Plaza de la Libertad adquirió un distinto y más urgente significado literal”.— Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.

FRSB turns down complaint but issues guidance recommendation

first_img A complaint concerning a £1 discretionary donation to diners’ bills has not been upheld by the FRSB.The discretionary donation to Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention was added to every diner’s bill during the Christmas period at a local branch of a chain of restaurants operating in the UK.The complainant felt the approach was deceptive because they had not seen any promotional literature about the partnership with the charity. They also felt it failed to take into account their right to be able to make an active choice about whether or not to donate to charity and that it put diners in an ‘awkward position’.The FRSB reviewed the campaign against industry standards, and established that promotional literature about the campaign had been placed on each table and displayed centrally within the restaurant. It found that all customers were also given the opportunity to opt out of making a donation at the point of paying for their meal. The charity had also carried out due diligence to ensure that the campaign was carried out appropriately.The FRSB concluded that the fundraising initiative was compliant with the Institute of Fundraising’s Code of Fundraising Practice. However, it also noted the increasing popularity of this fundraising method, and has recommended that new guidance for this type of charitable donation should be developed and incorporated into the Code of Fundraising Practice.Andrew Hind, chair of the Fundraising Standards Board, said:“Discretionary donations have become increasingly common in restaurants and shops which want to generate income for charities as part of their social responsibility activity. It has become a popular way for many people to give to charity. As such, we recommend that further guidance is developed to support charities and third parties looking to fundraise in this way.”The adjudication is available on the FRSB site: AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 Melanie May | 20 May 2016 | News FRSB turns down complaint but issues guidance recommendation  124 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 Tagged with: complaints Fundraising Standards Board About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Shelter solidarity struggle wins concession

first_imgSalt Lake CityActivists — unsheltered and sheltered — finally saw a response to their demands on Friday, Jan. 17, when the mayor’s office announced a plan to open a city-owned building for use as a temporary winter shelter. This was the first concession to demands issued by the Take Shelter Coalition at a City Council meeting protest last November.This followed the closure of the largest and most centrally located shelter for unhoused members of the working class. A solidarity encampment begun in January to continue demands has been violently dispersed by police.The new shelter is slated to provide 145 beds and has been scheduled to remain open until sometime in April. The 145 beds still fall far short of the number of beds eliminated by the shelter closing. Beside replacement beds, more demands need to be met.Take Shelter struggle continues“Homeless Person’s Memorial Candlelight Vigil” in Pioneer Park, Salt Lake City, Dec. 19A statement issued by the Take Shelter Coalition made clear that the struggle for housing and against police brutality and harassment is continuing:“Salt Lake City announced tonight that it will open a temporary shelter in Sugarhouse. Just two days before [Mayor] Erin Mendenhall was inaugurated, a camping occupation in Washington Square Park — Operation Take Shelter — was forcibly and destructively shut down by the police. That occupation was formed by the Take Shelter Coalition to serve our unsheltered neighbors and to draw attention to our five demands for city and state officials.”The five demands by the Take Shelter coalition are:Open a new downtown shelter.Have, at a minimum, the equivalent number of beds lost in the closure of the downtown Road Home shelter made readily available and accessible.No arrests, tickets or harassment for campers.Change the existing legislation to allow for the new centers to have more beds.Free public transit fare for all people who stay in shelters.The statement continues: “They may have shut us down, but we know that they could hear us. Today, Mendenhall announced the opening of a temporary shelter in Sugarhouse. Still, none of our five demands has been met.“This new shelter is far outside the downtown area where services are nearby. With the announcement that the Weigand Center warming station will now be closing overnight, that means that there will no longer be a warm place for anyone downtown to stay. So, if a person misses the evening shuttling from the Weigand Center, they are stranded with nowhere to go for warmth.“Before the Road Home closed, it could sleep 1,100 people every night. The new centers only hold 700. That means that even with this additional 145 beds, we are still 255 beds short. With this kind of deficit, there will continue to be people left outside in the cold. Our city needs an equivalent number of beds to ensure that people have access to a warm place to sleep.“It is essential that the police department immediately end the ticketing, harassment, and arrests of unsheltered people. The cops have spent all winter stealing people’s survival belongings, and no new shelter can ever make that okay.“With every shelter falling outside the free fare zone, our demand for free public transit fare for all people staying in shelters remains critical.“This crisis is the result of corruption, mismanagement, and systemic negligence by the city and state. Each one of our demands is essential, and we also know that we need real change, not reluctantly given crumbs. They shouldn’t only be addressing emergency shelter, they should also be mitigating the risk we all face because of their housing policies. They could do so by implementing the recommendations that the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute presented at their fact-finding session, and also by implementing the recommendations presented by the ACLU regarding their use of police. These are outside the scope of our demands, but exactly within the scope of their responsibilities.“This is not good enough. We will not be silenced by police repression or by state compromise. We will continue to fight for shelter and dignity for all people.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
